About the property

Gorgeous Home with Screened Pool

This home has been remodeled several times by the owners with high quality furnishings, fittings, and equipment to make your vacation stay as comfortable as if you were in your own home. As you arrive in through the screened entry front door, you will notice the beautiful tile used throughout the first floor living and dining areas which stay cool and comfortable year round. The home has two story living areas with massive ceiling fans and oversized chandeliers which are both lovely and useful. The twin sets of sliding glass doors look out to the west facing screened pool area which overlooks a small and tranquil lake, where you and your guests can enjoy the sunset.

The living room is furnished with modular leather seating and ottomans which allow you to reconfigure them at your convenience to suit your mood or your activity. There is a large flat panel TV within a large wooden entertainment center that contains a DVD player as well as 100's of DVD's for your enjoyment. The glass dining table at the end of the room seats 6 comfortably and allows your guests to enjoy the view during their meals. The formal dining room table is very substantial and has been site of many happy occasions and holidays.

The extensively remodeled kitchen features beautiful cherry wood cabinets with Corian counters, multiple microwaves and lots and lots of cooking equipment (calphalon, bread machine, mixers, processors, bakeware, slow cooker, blender, etc.), serving ware, and spode dishes, and heavy flatware, etc. (all in more than adequate quantities) to make any meal a celebration! The home also features two dishwashers to make clean up super fast and easy so that you can get back to enjoying all the fun that the Orlando area has to offer.

The first floor also has a single bedroom with queen size bed that overlooks the pool area and a bathroom with shower. The laundry room has front load washer and dryer, laundry sink and lots of additional storage, etc. There are plenty of bath and pool towels for your visit.

There are 3 bedrooms (all with queen beds) and a bathroom upstairs (with large walk in shower with seat area, dual head and 6 body spray shower tower and dual glass bowl sinks) that connect with a separate media area with flat panel screen, DVD player and, again, lots and lots of DVD's for you enjoyment, in theater style leather seating for your comfort and convenience (including cupholders).

The master suite area has a queen size bed with a beautiful view of the pool and lake area to the west. It has a separate flat screen TV with DVD player and generous furnishings including a desk with adjustable makeup light. The master bathroom has his and her vanity areas with glass bowl sinks and generous storage and medicine chests. The master bathroom tub is garden style for a long deep soak, should you have the time. However, most guests prefer to use the massive floor to ceiling steam shower 'room', which also has dual shower heads, body sprays and a generous seating area for maximum relaxation.

The pool area is west facing and has a very generous deck that is furnished with 3 wrought iron chase loungers (cushions are stored in the garage) and a teak table with chairs for your use while in the home. The pool area is screened to protect you from insects and other uninvited guests (read: ducks, birds, gators!).

The home benefits from the recent completion of significant road improvements to and from Disney making it even faster to get to the fun for you and your family. Orlando is also home to numerous other attractions such as Sea World, Universal Studios & Island of Adventure, countless golf courses and unbelievable shopping that central Florida has to offer.

About Patti Hoholek

We are from central Illinois although we have been transferred all over the U.S. We now call Texas our home but love to spend time in Florida. We were originally attracted by the Mouse, but now we keep coming back to Florida for the golf!

Patti Hoholek purchased this house in 2000

Why Patti Hoholek chose Crescent Lakes

This property presented us a unique opportunity to have an affordable home with a generous amount of bedrooms, bathrooms, high quality fittings, a spacious pool area and a large lot with sunsets over the water. It embodies the relaxing pace and uncrowded feeling that we wanted in a vacation getaway.

What makes this house unique

It is generously equipped, furnished and appointed. It is close to Disney, Universal, golf, restaurants and shopping without feeling crowded, hurried or cluttered. It is a great value for the quality of the accommodation, especially for families or groups.

Overall okay

  • 3 of 5

Well equipped home, great kitchen. Wonderful sunsets over lake in back yard.

There were a number of issues on arrival, pool heat not on, only two functional chairs in pool area, pool required water, lanai has greenish stuff growing in screening, pool deck required cleaning, blinds inside in mention a few.

Located in nice neighbourhood but seems a long way from anything ( golf, theme parks, etc.) due to distances and significant traffic volume this year.

In fairness, Patti responded promptly when contacted and even ordered new chairs for pool area. They arrived around half way through our stay.

My 6th year spending 6-8 weeks each winter in central Florida , we don’t believe this property was value for the money and would not return.

Owner's Response: Hi Rob, i am sorry for some of those mishaps during the first part of your stay but i did try to fix them in a timely fashion. Our home is just that a home away from home and lots of our guests like that they are not near the hussle and bussle of all the action and can stay in a lovely lake view home and have piece of mind. thank you for staying in our home and we do hope one day you will return.

Thanksgiving Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. Was beautiful inside and out. Kitchen was fully stocked. Had everything you could image, yes even a bread maker. Loved the counter space in the kitchen. Especially when it was time to put all the food out. The upstairs was perfect for the kids to sit and watch TV while the adults were able to visit downstairs. 15 miles from Disney Springs. 7 miles to Medieval Times. Very nice house. You will totally enjoy it.

Rental home in Crescent Lakes

  • 3 of 5

This is a large house with bedrooms and bathrooms on two levels that can readily accommodate a large family of mixed ages. The kitchen had almost an excess of glassware, crockery, and appliances to meet all needs. The air conditioning works well and unobtrusively – essential even as the ‘cooler’ autumn weather approached.

An item that would have been useful for us would have been a brochure giving information on the area, local restaurants, etc., as we have found in other properties.

We did enjoy the wildlife that lives in and around the lake at the back of the property. We were excited, and have the pictures, of the (small) alligator that occasionally appeared to the apparent indifference of the ducks and edge-wading birds.

The owner, Patti, was responsive and friendly in all her communications and reacted quickly to any problems. She even personally checked after we had left to see if she could find items we thought we had left behind. It turned out we had the items hidden at the bottom of a suitcase and they were not lost !

It was therefore surprising with that level of service that wear and tear in the house had not been noted and rectified. We did not expect to find that the leatherette cushions on the oversize lounge settee were cracked and peeling and the upstairs landing carpet was stretched and rippled. Such issues do take the gloss off what is otherwise a good family home.

The real problem was the dirty pool and pool surround with weed and algae growing on the concrete and house side. It was immediately rectified by the local management company that pressure washed and cleaned and made sure we were happy with the result. That should have been addressed before we arrived.

Owner's Response: HI Joe and thank you for your input. We will be trying to fix the carpet upstairs. As for the couches we do love leather but it does tend to do this from the sun and peoples bodies especially if they sit on them from wet bathing suits. We are going to remove the ones that are worn so future guests can enjoy the lovely living room. Im glad we could fix the pool area during your stay and thank you for your patience during the hurricane stay. Hope to see you back real soon

Beautiful, high quality home in quiet yet convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Date of stay, mid August to mid September 2016

A huge and beautiful home in a quiet cul-de-sac with larger than average heated pool was the best that my family of 6 adults 18-52 years have ever rented through VRBO/Homeaway over the previous 3 years. As other reviewers have said, the pictures do not adequately show the massive size of the rooms and the quality of the fixtures.

Patti, the property manager, answered our emails immediately regarding a couple of small issues we had.

The equipment, furniture and fixtures in the home were a very high quality giving an air of class and the all the beds were large and extremely comfortable and having 3 full bathrooms was a real bonus for the 6 of us.

The property was spotlessly clean and the home would easily cater for at least 12 people as the were more plates, bowls, cutlery etc than most hotels can manage as well as having 2 microwaves and 2 full size dishwashers and a new washer and dryer!!.

The views and the sunsets from the pool and the daily visits from a family of cranes and a peacock were amazing.

The home is about 15 mins from US 192 where there are literally hundreds of restaurants, tourist attractions and every type of shop but it is a straight and very easy drive.

Universal Studios Resort and Disney World are about 20 minutes away. Again a very easy drive.

This property could easily accommodate 2 families due to it's size and amount of equipment provided as a base to explore the theme parks (as we did) or even as a home for families to get together for social gatherings in one place.

Our security deposit was refunded the day after we arrived back home in the UK, which was very reassuring as other homes we have rented we have had to chase up the owners for a refund.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words! We are always happy when our guests our happy! Our number #1 goal is to provide a home that every guest, and their guests, feel comfortable, relaxed and luxurious. We appoint our homes the way we live at home, we don't skimp! Two dishwashers and two microwaves and more than enough dishes, glassware, and high quality Calphalon cookware may seem excessive to some, but when you are feeding more than a few people (which our homes are built to accommodate), these features can make a big quality of life difference! We also appreciate guests who treat our properties like their own home so we are very very quick to return security deposits as a means of returning your loyalty and consideration. As always, safe travels and we look forward to seeing you again very soon!
